Will Whiteoak plays key county role
The former Oakbank School pupil helped his side get off to a great start with a 7-2 win over Hampshire, Isle of Wight & Channel Islands.
Whiteoak teamed up with Ben Brewster to win his foursomes 7&5 and then overcame Jack Stubbington 5&4 in the singles.
Yorkshire went on to beat Devon 6-3 and Staffordshire 7-2 to claim their seventh title success, although Whiteoak suffered two foursomes defeats and a one-hole singles loss to Devon’s Jacob Tinsley.
Captain and coach Steve Robinson said: “We have not won this title for some time, so to win it this year is important for the county.”
